The sports law barristers at 11 Stone Buildings have an excellent reputation for sports law. The Legal 500 has recommended us as a leading set for sport, with individual barristers also featured for many years. Barristers are members of the Premier League disciplinary panel as well as sitting on other sports tribunals. Our clients are many and include participants, agents, administrators and governing bodies. The type of work carried out by members of Chambers includes disciplinary and drug issues, regulatory disputes, contract claims, court litigation, arbitration and panel representation. We have been involved in some of the most high-profile sports disputes in recent years but are also sympathetic to any client’s particular circumstances so as to offer practical and common-sense solutions.
Chambers has had a long-standing involvement with the British Association of Sport and Law and individual members regularly appear and talk at sports law related events.
